A couple of upsets and a “hail mary”?

Notre Dame must really be special, or blessed, or something?  They beat Stanford 20-14 in OT in the pouring rain in South Bend.  Or did they??  There was some controversy at the end as to whether the Stanford tailback did in fact twist and turn and reach the ball across the end zone on 4th and goal in their OT possession.  The ruling was no TD, review said the call on the field stands, and 7 Notre Dame remains undefeated.  Watch the replay, and decide for yourself.  It was a great game.

A couple of shocking upsets this Saturday.  13 Oklahoma just walloped 15 Texas in Dallas 63-21.  The newest member of the top five, 5 West Virginia will be exiting the top 5 after today, losing to unranked Texas Tech 49-14; hope they enjoyed it while it lasted.  In more predictable fashion, Virginia Tech defeated Duke  41-20 after falling behind early; North Carolina won a close one over Miami 18-14; 1 Alabama took care of Missouri 42-10;  6 Kansas State survived Iowa State 27-21; Iowa beat Michigan State in OT 19-16; and 10 Oregon State took care of BYU 42-24.

Florida is up on Vandy 31-17, USC leads Washington 24-14, FSU is taking it’s frustration out on Boston College 51-7 and in the BIG one, South Carolina leads LSU 7-3 early in Death Valley.  Second half update, South Carolina up 14-10 with LSU driving.
